About me

I am a therapist who is able to work with a wide range of difficulties that you may be facing, including relationship issues, divorce, communication breakdown, child/parent relationships, depression, anxiety, negative unwanted thoughts, anger, bereavement and loss. Or perhaps you are just in a stuck place with regard to making the right decisions for your life. Maybe you have lost confidence in yourself? I believe as a therapist that encouraging a trusting relationship is the foundation for any real work to move forward and to develop positive change and healing. I work in a safe, confidential and comfortable environment, which is accepting and non-judgemental. I work with various tools and researched theories depending on what would be beneficial for you.

I will incorporate a Person-Centred model, which means that you are at the 'centre' of the work, not a system or a method. I may draw on insights from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic insights and creativity. Creativity can be very helpful to process feelings which could be difficult to express and explore as part of your healing and change.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked within various counselling agencies, gaining valuable experience by working with people from all walks of life. Everyone’s background and journey is unique.

I have a Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy obtained through Willows Counselling Services in Swindon, incorporating working within the agency where I still practice and volunteer alongside my practice in Wantage.

Prior to that, I studied at New College in Swindon.  I am a member of various professional bodies, and continue with ongoing personal development, ensuring that you are receiving professional standards of counselling. My associations can be found on my website
